The EcoLovegical Project
I was reading almost all the stories. And all the stories tell the same or nearly the same. My story is different. I came to the U.S.A. to try to change the mind of the people, who don’t have conscious that mother Earth is dying and a lot of people don’t move a finger to stop it.
I’m a composer and song writer too. And I wrote about three hundred and fifty songs. Most of them talk about love between man and woman; but since I went to Cancun in 1987, I understood the meaning of my life. I started to protect all the creatures like flora and fauna to keep it wild, but it wasn’t enough. So I was thinking that my music would be the answer, but I needed to learn English and the perfect grammar to write songs and tell the world. I’m here to protect you and help you. You’re not alone anymore and this is how it was born, “the EcoLovegical Project.” Only that I didn’t write in English before. So I start to study and practice English with the people from the Old world. They were in Cancun to visit the Maya’s archeology ruins. I met a lot of people from France, Germany, Holland, Japan, Italy, Monaco and many more places. It was because I was performing at the Fiesta Americana Inn and also at the Holiday Inn. I was playing in Panama’s band, named Tony Bananas. We played Reggae, Jazz, soft rock and folk Caribbean music and most of them were in the English language. So I understood that English is the universal language, and that is why I want to be a citizen of the world and my music can be listened to worldwide. Now I’m almost done with my project, thanks to the teachers who corrected me and to speak English fairly well, and I like to thank the Ysleta Community Learning Center staff, for being excellent people and treating me with politeness when I went to the main office.
Thanks to my family who supported me and cheered me on to keep going forward until I reach my goals. The next step is that I’m going to record a professional demo and send it to the companies who I want to suggest a different music style and ecological lyrics, to touch the human feelings.
